BACKGROUND Blood Oxygen Level Dependent (BOLD) magnetic resonance (MR) is a novel imaging tool that detects changes in tissue oxygenation. Increases in renal oxygenation in response to a standard 20 mg intravenous furosemide stimulus have been evaluated to assess kidney viability in patients with renal artery stenosis (RAS). The effect of prior exposure to(More)
A segmented k-space acquisition technique using noninterleaved velocity encodings is presented to reduce spatial and temporal blur in phase-contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. A translating phantom with pulsatile flow was used to simulate imaging of coronary arteries on a 1.5-T GE Echospeed scanner, using both interleaved and noninterleaved(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity and visceral adiposity are increasingly recognized risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Visceral fat may reduce myocardial perfusion by impairing vascular endothelial function. Women experience more anginal symptoms compared to men despite less severe coronary artery stenosis, as assessed by angiography. Women and men have different(More)
The purpose of this study was to (1) develop and present a technique to quantitatively assess three-dimensional distribution and clustering of intramuscular fat and (2) use the technique to compare spatial characteristics of intramuscular fat in rotator cuff muscles of older adults with and without a supraspinatus tear. Moran’s Index (I), an existing(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown an association between statin therapy and a reduced risk of heart failure among breast cancer survivors. Our goal was to evaluate whether statin therapy for prevention of cardiovascular (CV) disease would ameliorate declines in the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) that is often observed during(More)
